About Us:
Morven Museum and Garden is administered by Historic Morven, Inc., a non-profit organization founded in 1987, in cooperation with the New Jersey Department of State. The state acquired Morven in 1954.

The mission of Historic Morven, Inc. is to "preserve and operate the National Historic Landmark known as Morven as a museum and public garden showcasing the cultural heritage of New Jersey."

The museum occupies the house called Morven, the former New Jersey Governor's Mansion and 18th century home of Richard Stockton, a signer of the Declaration of Independence. Its restoration and conversion to a museum were completed in 2004.

Historic Morven, Inc. is governed by a volunteer Board of Trustees. A full-time staff and volunteer corps carry out day-to-day operations.
